“I never thought (Venit) would resign. Ever,” says Crews of the powerful former WME agent, whom he accused of groping him at a party in 2016. “I was totally prepared to go all the way to next July and see the case all the way through.” According to Vanity Fair, "the settlement between Crews, Venit, and WME stipulates that the talent agency must pay $375,000 to Crews to cover his attorney fees, and that Venit must resign—with a provision that WME cannot rehire him in any capacity in the future. Additionally, WME has agreed to alter its employee conduct policy to adequately address sexual assault and battery by WME employees against clients, and now requires allegations to be reported to the heads of the firm’s legal and human resources departments."

Samantha Bee: Les Moonves should've been asked to step down from CBS
“In the words of one of the immortal characters he helped create: ‘It’s time for this Moonves to be eclipsed,'" Bee said on Full Frontal while doing an impression of CSI: Miami's Horatio Caine. “CBS president Les Moonves is in deep trouble for sexually harassing female colleagues – or maybe he’s not in trouble at all,” Bee -- who tapes her show at CBS Broadcast Center in New York -- said on Wednesday's edition of Full Frontal. “Yes," she added jokingly, "who could ever bear to get rid of the creative mastermind who developed Hawaii Five-O and Hawaii Five-O: Miami? Les Moonves may be a brilliant TV creator, but no cop procedural, no matter how well-crafted and original, is worth ending a woman’s career to shut her up."
